TTTC 2006 Doctoral Thesis Award Invitation
The aim of the 2nd TTTC Doctoral Thesis Award is to promote and strengthen the interaction between doctoral students who are about to graduate and the industrial community. It also serves as a process by which student work will be exposed to and tested under real life industrial needs by experts in the field. This is achieved with student presentations in a conference environment in front of an industrial panel that will have the chance to evaluate, comment, and contribute to their work in terms of novelty and advance of industrial practice. This is your chance to give your work and yourself visibility in the international test community!
